Will Connor Williams become a Jaguar? Will Malik Jefferson become a Titan?
With the NFL Draft upcoming, Texas will have no shortage of professional prospects. Williams, an offensive lineman, and Jefferson, a linebacker, both entered the draft after leaving a year of eligibility on the table. As did punter Michael Dickson, running back Chris Warren III and defensive backs DeShon Elliott and Holton Hill. Defensive tackle Poona Ford and receiver Armanti Foreman are among the UT seniors who could catch the attention of NFL scouts.
The NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday evening. So, what are the NFL insiders seeing in their crystal balls when it comes to the Longhorns?
For our final round-up, we’re pulling from the mock drafts made by Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller, CBS Sports’ R.J. White, NFL.com’s Chad Reuter, the San Diego Union-Tribune’s Eddie Brown and WalterFootball.com’s Walter Cherepinsky. Each of these mock drafts mapped out all seven rounds.

In the lead-up to the draft, the American-Statesman even got into the mock draft business. In Thursday’s newspaper, the American-Statesman’s Kevin Lyttle and Cat Vasquez printed their predictions for the first round of the NFL Draft. Lyttle paired Williams with New England and the 31st overall pick. Vasquez has Williams landing in Minnesota (30th overall).
Who is right? Who is wrong? We’ll find out over the next few days. By the way, Texas last had six players taken in the same draft in 2010.
